How to Convert 4K MOV Video to MP4 for Successful Edit and Playback

With several video formats available, the reality is that most are incompatible with a lot of devices. For instance, Apple’s default MOV video format is usually not playable on certain devices. Recorded videos on the iPhone are usually in this format. Some cameras and drones, too, have adopted the MOV filetype as their output format of choice. But unfortunately, a lot of people have issues when trying to play or edit videos in this particular format.

While streaming is the most popular way to consume content these days, some of us still prefer to plug a flash drive directly into the television to watch locally downloaded videos. However, some of these videos are often unplayable because they are in a format the TV is unable to decode. Quite a lot of televisions and old media players are unable to play MOV files. If you’re also having issues importing your MOV vides to your preferred video editor, the only reasonable solution is converting such MOV videos to MP4 format.

The generally accepted video format that seems to be easiest to work with remains the MP4 format. This is why many people prefer to convert MOV videos to the MP4 format for better playability and editing.

So, what’s the best program to convert MOV to MP4?

Personally, I’ve used quite a number of video converters in the past but I’ve always leaned towards WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe due to several reasons.
